Abstract

 The study aims to prepare several nanocomposite coatings on low-carbon steel, acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, and alumina substrate two nanoparticles TiC and SiC were used. FESEM, EDX, XRD, contact angle, nanoindentation test, ball on-disc tribometer, and polarization tests were done. The results show different coating properties can be obtained using different deposition conditions. Two multi-criteria decision-making methods, the weighted sum model and the analytic hierarchy process were utilized to distinguish and choose the best coating for each substrate.

After the discussion committee recorded its observations on the thesis, which were divided between explanation and correction, and the student’s defense of her thesis, and the end of the discussion, the committee sat down to evaluate the thesis, and decided to grant the student a doctoral degree with a pass grade.

Abstract

The study aimed to solve the problems of hot asphalt mixture represented by the Rutting (depth of rutting) occurring in Iraq by adding depolymerized polyethylene terephthalate (DPET) with bitumen to produce developed bitumen, while conducting the necessary tests, and after mixing the aggregate with the filler material and modified bitumen, a test of Marshall stability and percentage of Air voids, rutting depth, and indirect tensile strength. The results reached a clear and significant improvement due to the presence of functional groups represented by monomers in the additive with the developed bitumen. The optimal percentage of the additive was 20% DPET.

Written by

Dr. Mohammed Al-Zuhairy, a lecturer in the Department of Materials Engineering at the University of Technology, delivered a discussion lecture at the College of Engineering, University of Mustansiriya, titled 'Concepts of Sustainable Materials and Solid Waste Recycling: A Case Study of Plastic Waste.' The lecture took place on Sunday, February 12, 2024, at 10:30 AM.

During the lecture, Dr. Al-Zuhairy addressed the concepts of sustainability, providing a detailed explanation of its three pillars related to economic, environmental, and social aspects. He emphasized the importance of sustainable living through equal opportunities for all, the provision of renewable and clean materials and energy, and the enhancement of the research environment in Iraq as a crucial means for national development. Dr. Al-Zuhairy also discussed the production of green hydrogen and solid waste recycling as fundamental solutions for energy provision, environmental protection, and economic development in Iraq and the Arab region. He highlighted the importance of possessing technology instead of relying on the transfer of knowledge from the West.

At the end of the lecture, the Dean of the College of Engineering, University of Mustansiriya, Prof. Malik Jasim Farhan, presented a certificate of appreciation to Dr. Mohammed Al-Zuhairy, commending his outstanding efforts in delivering the lecture.

Abstract:

The aim of the research is to enhance the performance of sunscreen cream with natural additives (Bee wax, Lanolin, Sandal wood extract) because these materials are safe on the skin, non-toxic, and do not have side effects on the skin. Sunscreen cream has been tested by physical, chemical and biological tests. The results are explained that the prepared sunscreen samples showed the absence of irritation and redness and better than commercial sunscreen in transmission, anti-bacterial, Ph and SPF tests and Convergent values in FTIR and physical test.

After the discussion committee recorded its observations on the thesis, which were divided between explanation, correction, and the student’s defense of her thesis
